Rapper Pooh Shiesty surrendered in Miami on Tuesday (June 8) on charges of aggravated battery for allegedly firing a gun in a club and injuring a security guard.
According to an arrest report from the Miami-Dade Corrections site, the 21 year-old rapper born Lontrell Denell Williams Jr. was taken into custody this week and charged with a felony count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in a case stemming from an alleged shooting that took place at the King of Diamonds strip club over Memorial Day weekend.
According to the Miami-Herald, the arrest warrant claimed that the rapper shot a security guard in the ankle on May 30 at the club and his lawyers arranged for him to surrender in the case on Tuesday. The paper noted that a judge granted him a $10,000 bond, but that the MC will have to remain behind bars until at least Thursday (June 10), when he’s scheduled to appear in court on an an earlier charge from a December shooting in which he was charged with armed robbery, aggravated battery with a weapon, aggravated assault with a firearm and petty theft. He has pleaded not guilty in that case; attorney Bradford Cohen had not responded to a request for comment at press time.
